Green greetings!

I'm in the midst of yet another super last minute birthday pressie making session but I couldn't resist sharing some lovely green things for the linky party at Raindrops & Daisys. (and it seems quite fitting that I'm making a frog doll for my nan..just to keep the theme going!) So here goes....

We visited the Eden Project on Sunday and had a rare glimpse of sunshine! There are so many stunning flowers there, I particularly loved the wildflower borders, as did little Miss M.

ruby chard
 and a little cushion cover and matching card (how very twee indeed) commissioned by a friend to give to her boyfriends mother (who is a sheep farmer!)
 and more cards in progress.... sew many circles....

Thanks for looking my lovelies
Well wishes and soggy summer greetings from little ol' Cornwall

  9. I do like your little sheep pillow, even if it does remind me of my neglected knitting! The wildflower border is fantastic and I chuckled at the shoe planting. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thankyou, I thought the shoe planter was rather fab, I once use an old Doc Martin Boot as a planter but the stiletto is definately better! :)

  10. Hi, I came here again after stopping by Fiona's blog.
    Well, I don't know if it can be any help or not. But are you using "Picasa"? Maybe you won't and nothing to do with it, haha.
    In my case, my header wasn't able to renewed saying "I am over my upload limit". I checked picasa and deleted unused pictures or old headers in the web album of it. It worked. I have several blogs which are linked; well, may be not the same case,p;)
    I wish you will be able to sole the problem as I konw how annoying it can be. Love you always, xoxo Miyako*

    1. Thankyou for visiting! I would definately recommend visiting Eden if you are ever in this neck of the woods. There are so many places in Scotland I would love to visit..but it really is a long trek isn't it...even more so with two little fidgety kids in he car! You must visit Cornwall one day though!! x
